You might be making your spouse fat

My husband and I both work full time. And there was a long period where we worked in the same company (albeit different departments). And we both worked really long hours.



Then we had our little guy and life had to change: There were more important aspects to our life together than work.…

Taking work stress home

My son loves my office. On the few occasions I've taken him to visit, he received lots of attention from my coworkers, treats, hot chocolate and got to play with the stuff at everyone's desk. He calls my coworkers "his coworkers" and requests to talk to them on the phone sometimes.…

Tips for equality in parenting

Describe the workload involved in being a parent. Are you listing out the physical tasks you help your child with (getting dressed, brushing teeth, reading bedtime stories)? Or are you thinking about the mental workout (worrying about them when they are away at camp, remembering their measurements, sizes and all their friend's names) as well? Did you remember to list all those ancillary chores that keep the household running smoothly…

Trying to stay off the "mommy track" at work

As mentioned in the past, I work for a great company with a great group of people. There are a lot of women on my team, and there are a lot of mothers. We understand what it means to be a working parent: We watch one another's backs and fill in when family emergencies arise.…

Stay in school, kids

As my son and I waited way too long to get a prescription filled the other day, an older gentleman started chatting with us. He remarked that my son was being very patient, and he asked my son how old he was. My son replied politely. (Proud Mommy moment.) My son then volunteered the information that he was allowed to talk to strangers but not leave…

Staying in sync with the kids

When I was in junior high school, my Mom worked a varied schedule. Sometimes she was there to pick me up right at 3:30; other days I would go into after school care until 5 pm. Sometimes a friend's parents took me home. (That particular Catholic school didn't have a bus.)…

The Traveling Working Mom Part 2

Welcome to Part 2 of my Traveling Working Mom series! This week I have my second overnight trip away from Teagan. This trip will be a little longer and kicks off four consecutive weeks of work travel. Yikes!



To say I'm anxious is an understatement. As I mentioned in my last post I absolutely love my job, so when I'm gone for work I'm easily distracted, but Teagan is always in the back of my mind and the guilt of leaving my husband to be a single dad is ever…

Families interrupted by work

As soon as I got pregnant, two things started happening right away:

  1. Other mothers started telling me pregnancy- and child-related horror stories. (Seriously, why do women do this?)
  2. I was treated a little differently at…

The Traveling Working Mom

This week I became the traveling, working mom. This was my first overnight trip away from Teagan and leading up to the trip I had mixed feelings, as well as during the trip.



I can honestly say I'm in the best job of my career up to this point. I love my company and my job gives me pride, energy, and excitement. I knew after Teagan was born I would need to travel at certain points in the year, but I was conflicted with how this would impact me and my family. At the…

The Hidden Benefits of Daycare

I grew up with live-in nannies. Not many nannies at once of course, I’m not a Kardashian, but one nanny at a time over the course of my childhood. My parents both worked full-time jobs and needed someone around the clock to help take care of me and my brother. I loved my nannies, they were like family to me and I cried as each one of them left to be closer to their real families.

So when it came time to make a decision for …

Going to work to relieve your stress

By now, you may have seen the study which indicates that adults find work life less stressful than home life. The study concludes that people who work enjoy better mental and physical health and that full-time working mothers report better mental health than mothers who work part-time or who are stay-at-home moms. The study also found…
